Kanye West and Kid Cudi make live debut as Kids See Ghosts at Camp Flog Gnaw
The 45-minute set at Tyler, The Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw in Los Angeles included a full performance of their eponymous debut album along with older collaborations
Kanye West and Kid Cudi played their first official show as Kids See Ghosts on Sunday as they closed Tyler, The Creator's Camp Flog Gnaw festival in Los Angeles. Performing inside a giant rectangular glass box that floated above the stage, the duo delivered a 45-minute set that included a full performance of their eponymous debut album, which arrived earlier this June as one of the five projects Kanye helmed at the Wyoming Sessions this year.
The duo's headline set opened with 'Father Stretch My Hands Pt.1,' from Kanye's 2016 album 'The Life Of Pablo', and also featured many of the duo's past collaborations including 808s and Heartbreak’s 'Welcome to Heartbreak', and 'Ghost Town', the album highlight from Kanye’s latest solo effort, 'ye.'
Perhaps the first of more collaborative projects to come from the duo, 'Kids See Ghosts' features guest contributions from Pusha T, Yasiin Bey and Ty Dolla $ign, as well as a vocal sample of Louis Prima, who is credited posthumously as a featured artist.
It features prominent production from both Kanye and Cudi, with further contributions by Dot da Genius, Mike Dean, Evan Mast, Plain Pat, BoogzDaBeast, Benny Blanco, Jeff Bhasker, Justin Vernon, Noah Goldstein, Andrew Dawson, Cashmere Cat and André 3000, among others.
The cover art was designed by Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami, who previously created the album artwork for West's third studio album 'Graduation'.
